There are about a million typical sizes. If you want to cover a bunch of sizes then get an Ideal frame and the appropriate dies for the connectors and cable you are using. There is RG6, RG58, RG59 and a bunch of other cable types.

If you are trying to come up with an "in house standard" I'd suggest picking a specific cable and connector combination and buying a crimp tool specifically for that combination.
